About Cat Herders Day
Americans observe National Cat Herders Day annually to recognize the efforts of those who work hard every day and overcome numerous challenges.
This holiday was created by Ruth and Tom Roy, and they sum up the day with this description: "If you can say that your job, or even your life, is like trying to herd cats, then this day is for you, with our sympathy."
So if you ever feel the frustration that getting people and colleagues to the most straightforward tasks is like trying to herd cats, then use this day to realize you are not the only one who feels the same.
The idiom “herding cats” became popular in the 2000s after it was used in a Super Bowl commercial.
